Craigs List does share with you the ways to know whether it is fraud or not. That is why when I have advertised to sell my car, I have clearly written "NO SCAMMERS NEED TO INQUIRE",because I will turn them into authorities, you can also google the respondents email address they are using and see if they have been in trouble with other scams. Hope this info is helpful.

This guy is the classic "good intentions" swindler... Everything he says is convincing and believable, but in the end you will never get any money back that you give him. He has robbed people that I know of atleast $50,000 in total that I myself know of... TIM JACOBS WILL BURN!

TIM JACOBS IS A FRAUD, BELIEVE IT - people are desperate, don't you know? Intelligence would be taking action to entangle this crook and believing what's happening. WAKE UP, life is happening outside of your computer. TIM would be living with his sister to hide from people wanting to kill him!

It's about time this scammer is taken down. He has lost just about everthing and has nothing left to lose. He lost a wife, new home, new cars, his parents respect, vlaues, morals, ethics, a great job, a girlfriend, another kid, more new cars, friends, religion and I can go on all night. He has also left those listed with nothing and on the street. He has walked off with "friends" 401k's & life savings with nothing in return. Be careful!!

Tim is a pathological liar, he has a sickness. He can lie without any guilt in doing so. He doesn't pay child support for any of his three children and hasn't for over a year. He walked out on both his now ex-wife and girlfriend leaving them with foreclosures they were unaware of and children to feed on separate occasions and no care at all. He does not have any money to loan, nor does he have any to pay back anyone for what he has scammed.

Is this not something the Attorney General should be looking into? It appears at first blush that a lot of people are out thousands of dollars. When individuals complain to the Attorney General about contractors doing this they go after that individual.

Everyone that Tim has taken for a ride needs to file complaints so this sick game of his can end. No matter if it was $400 or $5,000 it all adds up.

I also worked with Tim. He screwed over 10-20 people we worked with every day. Selling I-pods, blue tooth etc. and never giving them there item. These are people we saw daily and it did not bother him to screw them over. He got a girl pregnant at work and convinced her to quit her $22.00 an hour job so he could flower her with riches. Today the girl has lost her home and gets no support from Tim. Before claiming to be a lender he used to do the same things with electronics. Get the peoples money and never send the product. How long can this jerk get a way with this. PLEASE DO NOT EVER TRUST THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE!You know when he is not telling the truth because his mouth moves.I personal know of thousands he has taking. This is all fact. I swear to you none of this is made up.

Tim is a big loser! The worst kind of human god ever created. If you ever see this man run as fast as you can. Tim currently has no family or friends. That should tell you something about this con man.
